Mac - How to add a printer

  • Click the Apple.
  • Go to System Preferences
  • Select Printers & Scanners
  • Click the + at the bottom right of the screen to add a new printer
  • Select advanced at the top ( Looks like a cog )
    • If the cog isn’t visible, you can add it by Control clicking the add window and then selecting the customize toolbar
    • Then drag the advanced icon from the toolbar window to the add printer window.
                       
 
  • On this new window fill out/ change the following fields:
    • Type = Windows printer via spools
    • Device  = another device ( This is default )
    • Url = smb://sentinel/Dan103ClrMfP     ( The name of the printer is at the end, but this should be the one in Dana I believe)
    • Name = Change this to whatever you like, it is the name you see only on your machine
    • Location = Same as above, only you see this info
    • Use = Generic Postscript printer
Mac users:  The HP print drivers for mac can be downloaded from:  https://support.apple.com/kb/DL1888?locale=en_US

This downloads the file hpprinterdriver5.0.dmg. Install, then when adding the printer, under the "Use" drop down menu, choose "Select Software...", then in the search box type 577 and it should show "HP Color LaserJet MFP M577" as one of the choices.''
 
The first time you print, this is going to ask for you network password. ( Not your local account, if this is different)
You can add this to your keychain so it doesn’t ask anymore or leave it blank if this is on a shared machine.
